(MAHWAH, N.J.)– The new Discovery Sport compact premium SUV has been transformed to make it more versatile and technologically-advanced for the 2020 model year. Embracing the adventurous spirit that has defined the Discovery family for the past 30 years, the new Discovery Sport strikes a balance between a bold evolution of the original design and the familiarity that comes with no-compromise capability.
New seats across each of the three rows provide improved comfort and versatility, thanks to the second row 40:20:40 split fold and slide functionality, boosting the possible number of seat combinations to 246.
Designed with electrification in mind, the new architecture allows for the introduction of a new 48-volt mild-hybrid electric (MHEV) powertrain in the Discovery Sport. A new smart rear view mirror, first debuted on the new Range Rover Evoque, called ‘ClearSight Rear View’ is also available on the Discovery Sport for the first time; transforming the rear view mirror into an HD video screen at the touch of a button to display a rear-facing camera feed onto the mirror
Another new technology called ‘ClearSight Ground View’ has also been introduced to help drivers navigate high city curbs or tackle rough terrain by projecting camera imagery that offers a virtual 180-degree view beneath the vehicle onto the central touchscreen1
Advanced and responsive Land Rover InControl® Touch Pro™ infotainment, fitted standard, is also available with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™3, 4. Smart Settings use artificial intelligence algorithms to learn driver preferences, adjusting massage and seat positions, music and climate settings and steering column positioning to suit each driver.
The latest Discovery Sport is every inch a Land Rover vehicle, combining assured all-terrain handling with all-weather capability, including a wading depth of up to 23.6-inches. All-Wheel Drive and a second-generation Active Driveline system, standard with the P300 powertrain, is paired with Terrain Response® 2 technology to automatically detect the surface being driven on, adjusting the vehicle’s driving character accordingly1. New Advanced Tow Assist makes reversing with a trailer (up to 4,409lbs) more intuitive than ever.
A suite of advanced driver assistance systems is offered across all models, including Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist, which centers the vehicle in the lane based on road markings as well as maintains a following distance from the vehicle in front1. Other available advanced driver assistance technologies include Lane Keep Assist, Autonomous Emergency Braking and Driver Condition Monitor1.
The new Discovery Sport reaches North American retailers this summer. Pricing for the new Discovery Sport will be announced later this year.
